    My review of Newport Judo Club

    08-09-2015 by Barbara Robinson

    Hi, my name is Barbara. I've trained for many years at the Newport Club, and also previously at Richard's previous club, Moonee Valley Judo Club. I gained my Black Belt (First Dan), in 2012. I really enjoy training at Newport for quite a few reasons, but the main ones are are the relaxed family atmosphere combined with the traditions of Judo itself. Jigaro Kano, the great man who put Judo together, was a progressive and creative man. This is still very evident in Judo today. The general standard of Martial Arts in Australia is very high and safely conducted, but this is particularly true of Judo. Judo has also always welcomed women and children, both overseas and here in Australia. If you train at the Newport Judo, it does not matter if you are training mainly to keep fit or as a serious competitor. You will be catered for. Also, if you are female, there are a number of girls and women training at the moment. Judo also has a long and interesting history and is quite artistic. Come along and find out while getting fit!

    Answer from Newport Judo Club on 01-12-2016:
    Thanks Barb, Your dedication and commitment has made you and excellent Judoka

    Newport Judo Club and the Head teacher Richard Roper are more than just Judo , Self defence and fitness. Judo teaches principles that are life changing. Richard is knows judo and also brings to life priciples of awareness of what is around you, exporing possibilities and options ( for example, using your voice to create safety and avoid phsysical risk) and understanding that one has to make choices and commit - A judo student learns many throws and techniques bringing choice but execution requires commitment and follow through. Newport judo and Richard have given my family a gift not just of judo and fitness but lessons in the 'judo way' that are a gem for life and business.

    Thanks Andrew, Great Judoka's show themselves in their character.

    New to judo & was worried, but Newport Judo Club is great!

    01-09-2015 by Shannon

    I'm completely new to judo and martial arts in general, and before I started doing judo at Newport Judo Club my physical health was fairly poor, so I was nervous, thinking that after my first session I was going to walk away bruised and never wanting to get on the judo mat ever again! I needn't have worried at all - Richard and the club at Newport are a welcoming, diverse bunch and you soon feel part of the team. There is lots to be learned about Japanese judo and its traditions, but Richard is great at laying it out in a way that isn't too overwhelming, whilst giving you the tools to learn productively and be respectful to the traditions. You might be interested in judo from a self-defense standpoint. I certainly am - particularly as a young woman! - Richard has some great anecdotes and has often come over and shown me useful techniques where it's relevant. There is definitely a lot to learn, and Newport Judo Club has a range of people with different belts and in my experience everyone has something useful to teach me, and it's great that Richard encourages that kind of friendly environment. I'm (obviously) part of the Seniors class but I've shown up early for the Juniors by accident a few times, and the kids look like they're having a blast too so that's great!

    Answer from Newport Judo Club on 01-12-2016:
    Thanks It has been a great privilege to watch you grow in confidence and skill.

    What makes Judo so unique?

    In most forms of Martial Arts the second things you are taught is how to kick, punch or grapple. But in Judo the second thing you learn is how to fall and how to get up from that fall. Knowing how to fall is an extremely valuable asset in life. If you know how to fall, not only do you know how to get up from being thrown on the mat but you need never be concerned about falling in your every day life. I don't know if you can imagine the difference it makes to your willingness to tackle man...

    Fantastic workshops for bringing kids out of their shell with confidence!

    05-04-2013 by Helen Templeton

    Really Awesome music and confidence building workshops for kids. We went recently to the Summer Holidays workshop with our 2 little ones. Our eldest girl (11) has no issues getting up to sing but our little boy (8) has always been quiet and a little timid about speaking out in front of people and I thought this would be a big ask. The Director who runs this workshop is Amazing - So encouraging and positive - Within 2 minutes he had changed our nervous young mans attitude from hiding behind me to having a ball of fun singing his heart out on the microphone! We could hardly get him off the microphone in the end! Parents can sit in and watch in this really expensive studio and I got to see how he did it with some great little exercises to bring kids out of their shell! So wonderful to see my little one laughing and giggling and performing! 5 Star - Brilliant value for money and they let all the kids watch a movie on the big studio screen afterwards. Thank you Shay and Creation Music Education! Made our weekend - the kids want to know when the next one is on! Helen

    My son has been swimming here for a number of years - started when he was a baby right through to 5 years. The lessons are well structured and cater for each child's ability. We have had some wonderful teachers; not only do they keep the little ones entertained, they teach them all the basics of water safety as well as teaching them to swim! I agree with the other reviewers that the change rooms are small but hopefully that will change once the renovations are up and running. A very friendly and family focused atmosphere.

    My daughter loves lessons at this swim clinic. They actually teach the kids to swim which funnily enough my last swim school (Richmond rec) didnt seem to do. They dont use floatation aids too much so kids ar forced to feel the water and actually learn to float themselves. My 3 year old is already dog paddling 5 or so metres and she has only been going 2 terms. I can highly recommend this school.

    How to make the first day of swimming lessons more enjoyable

    1. Preparing for day one of lessons On the first occasion your child has been in the pool without you, the change can create uncertainty, and transition can be made easier with your support: Talk about swimming lessons a few weeks leading into the first lesson, so your child has a good idea of what to expect. Explain to your little one they will be in the water with a teacher and other children, and mum and/or dad will be watching from the side of the pool. ...
